Alec Ogletree Injury A Broken Foot, Will Mean 4-6 Missed Weeks

Saturday night at the Georgia Dome was bad all around for the Georgia Bulldogs. Mark Richt announced Sunday that the team will be without starting linebacker Alec Ogletree for four to six weeks. Ogletree left the game against the Boise St. Broncos in the first half with what was later revealed to be a broken foot.

Sophomore Ogletree, a converted safety, was expected to be one of the learning defense's bright spots. He starred in the 2011 G-Day Game in his new position, boasting excellent speed for his position. Richt said a medical redshirt won't be necessary, since Ogletree should be able to come back and play at some point this season.

Walk-on Jeremy Sulek will compete with freshman Amarlo Herrera and junior Mike Gilliard for Ogletree's spot. Sulek played significant snaps at the position Saturday night.
